After growing up just 1 mile from the Pennsy 4 track mainline between NY City and Philadelphia there could be no other for me but the GG-1.

We would see that headlight in the distance and within what seemed like a few seconds that beautiful piece of engineering would fly by with sparks coming from the cat and an electrical charge in the air that you could taste.

I love to watch the steamers in action but the G will always remain my favorite. For our senior class trip to Washington, DC we rented 3 cars from the Pennsy. Headed by a G we made the trip non stop in short order at 100 mph!
I agree about the GG1 and also the EP5, E33 and E44. I just like electrics running under catenary.

Yes Michael, but you're actually modelling them. I have a small shelf layout but at least I'm back in the hobby.
